  • Genoa, North West Italy - more flooding

    A couple of weeks back I reported how devastating floods and mudslides had crippled the area of Cinque Terre in Italy a few days after I visited the towns. Well this morning the area to the north was reported to be suffering even worse problems. Genoa is the largest town in that part of the country and at the moment a large low lying sector is under water after raging flash floods swept through the streets causing incredible destruction. Again a number of people lost their lives.

    The video on the following news page shows just how devastating the situation was and the sheer power of the water. A terrible tragedy which makes you really feel for all those involked.

        Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

        OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
